While serving with the Peace Corps in Swaziland, Thomas Cowan encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and Weston A. Price - two men whose ideas would fascinate and challenge him for decades to come. Both drawn to the art of healing and repelled by the way medicine was-and continues to be-practiced in the United States, Cowan returned from Swaziland, went to medical school, and established a practice. He remained intrigued by the work of Price and Steiner and, in particular, with Steiner's provocative claim that the heart is not a pump. Dr. Cowan believes that Steiner was correct that the heart is not a pump, and our understanding of heart disease is completely wrong. And this gross misunderstanding is the reason heart disease remains the most common cause of death worldwide.

Done Hunting brings Martin Hunter’s memoirs to a close, sharing adventures and observations from his sixth to ninth decades. With descriptions of theatrical productions he’s written and directed, it also provides a subtle commentary on Canada and its social and cultural place in the world. Done Hunting also chronicles Hunter’s experiences as a magazine and radio journalist and his unsuccessful attempts to break into film and television as a scriptwriter. Accounts of his travels in Mexico, Sweden, England, France, and Italy include fascinating encounters with Laurier LaPierre, Bill Glassco, David Earle, and Adrienne Clarkson and writers Barry Callaghan, Mavis Gallant, and Gore Vidal. His friendship with Richard Monette and peripheral involvement with the Stratford Festival, as well as his work as a philanthropist as president of the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation, are highlights of this fascinating and insightful self-examination.
From the Periphery consists of more than thirty first-person narratives of everyday people who describe what it's like to be treated differently by society because of their disabilities.

From a #1 New York Times–bestselling author, “a heartwarming tale of bonding between people and animals” (Booklist). A sprawling suburban house in Santa Fe is not the kind of home where a buffalo normally roams, but Veryl Goodnight and Roger Brooks are not your ordinary animal lovers. Over a hundred years after Veryl’s ancestors, Charles and Mary Ann Goodnight, hand-raised two baby buffalo to help save the species from extinction, the sculptor and her husband adopt an orphaned buffalo calf of their own. Against a backdrop of the American West, A Buffalo in the House tells the story of a household situation beyond any sitcom writer’s wildest dreams. Charlie has no idea he’s a buffalo and Roger has no idea just how strong the bond between man and buffalo can be. In the historical shadow of the near-extermination of a majestic and misunderstood animal, Roger sets out to save just one buffalo—in a true story featuring “one of the most memorable characters in recent nature writing” (Publishers Weekly). “More than a touching man-beast buddy tale . . . lovingly chronicles the history of an embattled species and its importance in the American West.” —Entertainment Weekly “Moving proof of the restorative powers of man’s relationship with nature.” —People
